At this time, the Bear Pantry will be supporting students’ access to food through limited operating hours.

Please continue to refer to this page for updates to Bear Pantry hours and services.

In collaboration with Weld Food Bank, the Mobile Food Pantry will be visiting the UNC campus community three times throughout the semester. The Mobile Food Pantry supports UNC community members (students and employees) by bringing healthy, fresh foods to those in need of food assistance. The Mobile Pantry provides guests with fresh produce, dairy, meat, bakery, and/or dry goods at no cost 

We are in need of volunteers to help support the process of ensuring our campus community is able to receive these goods provided by the Mobile Food Pantry. Below are the dates the Mobile Food Pantry will be on campus, as well as a link to volunteer for the events.
